Think radically.  Aren't they the ones who would benefit most?  Back
when I was doing DESQview/X as my main OS, I was very popular, because
there was no Norton Utilities that spoke Japanese, and I was better at
recovering deleted files anyway.

Thus speaks someone who has never been closely associated with
corporate management, I'm willing to bet.  All managers lust in their
hearts for a "versioning file system with revision control features";
they just don't know that they should call it that.  A revision
control system with ease of use (ie, it doesn't increase the cost of
training and therefore the outside opportunities and wages of trained
secretaries) would do, I'm sure.
